Greetings and felicitations!
I finished yesterday my first two-toned scarf, made for my sister. Who just moved to Virginia. Timing, folks, timing.
Anyway, I found in Wal*Mart some Caron Nature Spun simply soft eco yarn made from recycled bottles. I now have five skeins of this stuff, which really is super soft. The colors are nice, bright, and the yarn has a little shine to it. I have no idea how the stuff will fare in the winter.
My sister's scarf was a real learning experience. I sort of followed Barbara Breiter's Odd Ball Scarf pattern, but as you can see, I pretty much did my own thing.
Luckily I have a nice sister who said the flaws made the scarf look more home-made and unique.
